Hi guys,

I picked up, Wow!! large box and very well packed.

I orderd this Kit from Wagner at Rcjet Models. Great guy, answered all my question quickly, very fast shipping.

I was getting this Kit alot earlier, but it was pushed ahead for new upgrades, like alum, ball bearing elevator mech. Carbon tube for wings and stronger and lighter glass.

here are some pics
all you see here is how it came today, I opened the kit up around 6:00 pm and got to this point 15 min ago.

Paul,

Looks great. This is going to be my next kit after I finish my JL T-45. I really like the doors already being hinged and cylinders already hooked up... What is your bird going to be powered by... I will have a Super Eagle for mine when I get it. I would like to know the price also... If you want just pm me the price....

Thanks guys for your posts. Guys and Gals, I ordered this Kit from a US dealer in Miami Florida, R/C Jet Models

I will be powering it with a brand New Jetcat P120, which I bought from Malculm kay, from here on RCU.

Looks like all I really need now is the servos, which will be Hitec Digitals, I am a Futaba guy--9ZWcII radio.

I am pretty sure I am going with a weatronic dual rx setup, I really like all the info i get out of it after a run.

In the pictures you didn't see a BVM UAT, but that is also coming which belongs to the combo kit and also all the wirring which is also coming. I didn't select the combo at first when I ordered it, I selected certain items from the combo which wagner helped me out with ease, but later he showed me some pics of the rest of the stuff, so I opted for the full combo kit, cann't beat it!!!


all the prices you need are at his site.

HI Paul, so how much for the complete package, I went to the site and found it very confusing on what"s included. From what I gatherd, it was $1500 for the ARF and $1500 for the accessory package, how about the missils.

Hi Paul,

I'd like first to congratulate you, she is a beautiful plane indeed and you are a very good photographer as well.
I hope you enjoy the jet and if you going to video tape the maiden please send me a copy.

Mine arrived today. I'm very impressed by the quality and look of it.:D:D

I also ordered the Diamond back scheme , so the photos are the same as Paul's. Wanted to highlight that the ARF also include the pipe and bypass.

Got it also from Wagner. Mine should go out with a Rhino and Tam’s cockpit. Will use Robart 635 with Skymaster struts.

I think this is a great buy for the price. Also was happy to deal with a US person and not having to send money to China.
